They’re going here, they’re going there. They’re going to Germany, like you do. Italian scuzzrockers Fvzz Popvli are set to release their second album, Magna Fvzz (review here), on Oct. 5 through Heavy Psych Sounds, and the night before, they’ll begin a run of more than three weeks’ worth of shows to support the record. You’ll note that this is the “European Tour Part I,” which means there’s a “Part II” lurking somewhere on the horizon.

I’d guess probably in the Spring if you were going to make me guess — which would be an odd thing for you to do — but it’s further evidence in any case of the band’s will to tour as they have done basically since they got going a couple years ago. They might not stop with “Part II,” either.

The PR wire has it accordingly:

Review & Track Premiere: Fvzz Popvli, Magna Fvzz

Posted in audiObelisk, Reviews on August 28th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

fvzz popvli magna fvzz

[Click play above to stream ‘And Let it Die…’ from Fvzz Popvli’s Magna Fvzz. Album is out Oct. 5 on Heavy Psych Sounds.]

Roman ‘u’-averse scuzzriffers Fvzz Popvli return on a quick turnaround with their second album for Heavy Psych Sounds, Magna Fvzz. The follow-up to last year’s Fvzz Dei (discussed here) arrives after multiple rounds of touring and an appearance at Duna Jam in Sardinia and finds the fuzz of the masses taking the form of a blender of modern influences from the likes of Kadavar, Uncle Acid, Black Rainbows and Electric Wizard, as well as a swath of US West Coast heavy jams brought through a filter of distance and the three-piece’s other component elements. It’s a fascinating and enticing blend, and Fvzz Popvli — the trio of Francesco “Pootchie” Pucci (see also: Beesus and The Wisdoom), bassist Datio Palatio and drummer Doncalisto — put it all together to emerge with a burgeoning personality of their own on dug-in cuts (cvts?) like “Rvmpletvm” and opener “And Let it Die…,” the total seven-track/39-minute offering rounding out with the 12-minute closer “Magna Fvzz” with Bazu from psych rockers Giöbia sitting in on synth.

That song is led into by “Rvmpletvm” and “Cherry Bowl,” which are the only two other tracks over five minutes long, so there’s a distinct feeling of pushing further along an outward path leading into the finale, and with the uptempo garage dirt in the tones of “And Let it Die…” and the bounce and swing of the subsequent “Napoleon,” the outset of Magna Fvzz is immersive enough to make sure the listener is brought on board for the trip. “Napoleon” more fully unveils a penchant for rolling groove that the more brash leadoff hinted at, and that only lets the trio build a more fervent momentum pushing through one song into the next on the way to the instrumental closer, which, again, is where everything seems to find its far-out limit, as much as there is one, with space being endless and all that.

More than anything else, Fvzz Popvli sound like a band moving in the right direction. They’re headed toward finding a niche between their points of inspiration that is becoming their own sound, and in the meantime, an emerging sense of songwriting and aesthetic craft serves them well on this sophomore outing. Magna Fvzz is somewhat more humble (hvmble? okay, I’ll stop) in its aesthetic than the grandiose title might lead one to believe, but the willful arrogance there, the use of the superlative, doesn’t feel accidental. It speaks to an underlying influence out of classic punk — The Stooges walk by and wave — that Fvzz Popvli manifest amid the grit of Pucci and Palatio‘s tonality and the blown-out effects on the vocals. To wit, the speedy “The Deal” rolls out with bruise-leaving fuckall, its 3:35 run the shortest on the album not for any radical change in structure so much as tempo, and finds Pucci tearing into a solo that’s one of the highlights of the record and perhaps the most direct tie to the Pacific Coast underground; bands like Radio Moscow and Earthless seeming to inform its jammed-out, off-the-cuff vibe.

fvzz popvli

Following “And Let it Die…” and “Napoleon,” “The Deal” seems to be the culmination of this aspect of the band’s personality, as the remaining four-tracks will push into new territory. That’s a classic mullet of an album structure — business up front, party in the back — but Fvzz Popvli wear it like a band-logo trucker hat and bring their sound to life with due vibrancy and naturalism, an organic live feel permeating the proceedings and adding to the flow between the songs as well as the impact of them individually, each seeming to bring something different to the collection as a whole while also offering standout moments like the “na-na-na” hook of “And Let it Die…” or Doncalisto‘s kick into a gallop in the second half of “The Deal.” All of this works together to give Magna Fvzz the feel of being the work of a group in the process of coming into their own, and as with Fvzz Dei and their initial single, Lost in Time (discussed here), before it, the potential for where Fvzz Popvli might end up is writ large in this material.

Perhaps nowhere more than in the centerpiece “Get Me,” which would seem to be the gateway to the back end of Magna Fvzz and with a 4:20 runtime emits a decidedly grunge feel early on, a mellow start with Pucci‘s still-effects-drenched vocals highlighting some melody while enacting a build that launches into fuller tone shortly before the halfway point and continues to build as it goes forward, a buzzsaw lead taking hold just before the three-minute mark seeming to be the culmination of the filth-laden side of Fvzz Popvli‘s sonic persona, and Pucci‘s vocals answer back with a particularly Obornian sneer. The subsequent “Rvmpletvm” is more patient but still plenty grime-caked in its low-end fuzz, though some layered-in acoustic guitar adds nuance and a sense of subtlety one might not expect for an album that has thus far been so pointed in its intent. Thus Magna Fvzz‘s sonic expansion is underway, and “Cherry Bowl” continues it with a more direct vocal melody and swirling guitar over a swinging and hypnotic progression on a long, minute-plus fadeout leading to the title-track’s initial noise-barrage and drum-led unfolding.

I don’t know if “Magna Fvzz” itself is improvised, but even if they went into the studio with a general plan, a good deal of it would seem to be captured live, and that comes through especially with the wash of synth added to the core three-piece’s sound. One almost wishes there were vocals somewhere in its mire to tie it more to the six songs preceding, but neither would I trade the noise-barrage after seven minutes in and the final build that follows from the ground up, a nodding and resonant finish that leads to noise and a cold stop as though everyone just decided they’d gone far enough. I’m not inclined to argue. Fvzz Popvli had an encouraging debut and answer it here with a purposeful sense of creative progression underway. Their greatest impact may still be yet to come — recall the band only formed two years ago; whatever bands their members were in before, they’re still relatively new as a group — but the potential in their scvzz fvzz is right there waiting to be heard.

Fvzz Popvli New Album Magna Fvzz Preorders Start Aug. 2

Posted in Whathaveyou on July 30th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

fvzz popvli
Pootchie Pucci and company from Italian heavy trio Fvzz Popvli are back this Fall with a new record following-up their Heavy Psych Sounds debut, Fvzz Dei, which came out last year. Keeping on theme, the new collection is titled Magna Fvzz, and it boasts seven tracks that, if the debut was any indicator, will live up to the idea of tone worship that the title hints toward. As you can see above, the three-piece hit the legendary Duna Jam — and by legendary in this instance I mean “does it even really exist?” — this year and, as everyone seems to do in the resultant photos, played to a gorgeous Sardinian sunset. Fucking awesome. The release date for Magna Fvzz is Oct. 5, which is as good a time as any, and preorders start Aug. 2. One imagines we’ll get some advance audio around then as well, so right on.

The PR wire issues preliminary details and the cover art as follows:

Their sound melt Black Sabbath style heavy riffs with the attitude of the roughest garagepunk bands like The Stooges, adding the psychedelia from the 70’s while creating their very own sound. The band released an EP in May 2017 followed by numerous shows in Italy, Switzerland and Germany. In June 2017 they became part of the Heavy Psych Sounds Records roster (Brant Bjork, Nick Olivieri, Fatso Jetson, Yawning Man, Nebula, Giöbia, Duel, Black Rainbows) in release of their first album “FVZZ DEI” in September 2017.

Heavy Psych Sounds Announces Vol. III Label Sampler

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 7th, 2018 by JJ Koczan

You gotta watch out for these. They’re sneaky. Label samplers can be tricky in general — sometimes it’s nothing but rehashed tracks from years ago with one or two new songs from a band somebody’s trying to push, but with Heavy Psych Sounds, their annual sampler series has been a way of sneaking new tracks out for first public showcases. Last year, new Black Rainbows showed up, and sure enough they appear here as well, and there also seems to be some new stuff from The Freeks included, which as far as I’m concerned is reason enough on its own to chase the thing down. Also Tons will have a track on there ahead of their album release in April, and new Killer Boogie, so yeah, plenty to grab onto, and even the stuff that’s already out — Mother Engine, Fvzz Popvli, The Lords of Altamont, Nick Oliveri — is all still current, and righteous. That “Kyuss Dies” song is hilarious.

Full tracklisting follows here, courtesy of the PR wire:

Fvzz Popvli Announce European Tour Dates

Posted in Whathaveyou on December 18th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

Granted they haven’t been around super-long or anything like that, but it kind of seems like just about every time I’m writing about about Roman trio Fvzz Popvli, they’re announcing a European tour. To wit, the post archive. If you have to work on a theme though, that’s an admirable one to go from, and it looks like what they’re calling the “second leg” in support of their Heavy Psych Sounds debut, Fvzz Dei, will be their most expansive stint yet, so all the better. At this point, I would not expect it to be the last announcement they have for 2018.

Ever bringing the hard-hitting questions, the PR wire wants to know if you’re ready to rock. Well, are ya, punk?

Here are 40+ New Releases to Look for in the Next Three Weeks

Posted in Features on September 21st, 2017 by JJ Koczan

Starting tomorrow, the next three weeks are absolutely stupid with new albums. Over-the-top, ridiculous. An immediately-go-broke amount of music. Nothing less than an onslaught. We’re under attack.

Far be it from me to tell you how to spend your money — also far be it from me not to — but there’s some really killer stuff in here. As to why it’s all landing now? Some of it of course has to do with the timing of when it was recorded, bands hitting the studio in Spring before heading out on the road over the summer, but Fall releases also line up nicely for tours in October and November, heading into the holiday season, when the music industry basically shuts down. This is the last chance for releases to come out in 2017 and be considered for best-of-year lists.

I doubt the likes of Chelsea Wolfe or Godspeed You! Black Emperor or even Kadavar would cop to that as a motivating factor, instead pointing to the timing of Fall touring and so on, but these things are rarely coincidental. You know how there aren’t any blockbusters in January but every movie feels like it’s trying to win an Oscar? Same kind of deal.

Nonetheless, 2017 is laying it on particularly thick these next couple weeks, and as you can see in the lists below, if you’ve got cash to spend, you can pretty much choose your rock and roll adventure. I’ll add to this as need be as well, so keep an eye for changes:

Brant Bjork, Europe ’16
Chelsea Wolfe, Hiss Spunthe-flying-eyes-burning-of-the-season

Nibiru, Qaal Babalon
Process of Guilt, Black Earth
Satyricon, Deep Calleth Upon Deep
Spelljammer, Inches from the Sun (Reissue)

Oct. 20: Iron Monkey, Spectral Haze, Bell Witch, The Spacelords, etc.

Something I forgot?

Invariably, right? If you know of something not seen above that should be, then by all means, please leave a comment letting me know. My only ask is that you keep it civil and not call me a fucking idiot or anything like that. I write these posts very early in the day, and if something has been neglected, I assure you it’s not on purpose and I’m happy to correct any and all oversights.

Thanks for reading and happy shopping. Support local record stores.

Fvzz Popvli Announce European Tour; Fvzz Dei out Sept. 22

Posted in Whathaveyou on August 22nd, 2017 by JJ Koczan

fvzz-popvli-Photo-Marcello-Lega

One month from today, Roman heavy rockers Fvzz Popvli — the fuzz of the people — will take part in one of 2017’s busiest release dates, issuing their debut album, Fvzz Dei — the fuzz of the gods — via Heavy Psych Sounds.They join the ranks of With the Dead, Ufomammut, Alcest, Process of Guilt, Nibiru, Thonian Horde, Spelljammer and Faces of the Bog — among, no doubt, others — in putting out a record on that date, but where there’s a riff there’s a way and the band, which boasts in its ranks guitarist/vocalist Pootchie, formerly of The Wisdoom and not at all to be confused with the cool sunglasses-wearing cartoon dog they put in that one Simpsons episode to add zazz to ‘The Itchy and Scratchy Show’ back in the ’90s — amazing the associations the mind makes sometimes — has already shown themselves to have plenty of those on their self-titled debut EP, which came out earlier this year.

Anyhoozle, a week after they play the release show in their native Roma, Fvzz Popvli head off on a lengthy European run that will consume the bulk of October, which was also newly announced by their label. The following came down the PR wire:

Fvzz Popvli Release Debut Single; Euro Tour Set for May

Posted in Whathaveyou on February 16th, 2017 by JJ Koczan

The fuzz of the people! History counsels healthy skepticism when it comes to anything taking on the tag ‘populi,’ but to say the least, the newcomer Roman trio seem to have brought enough fuzz for everybody. Their debut single, “Lost in Time” — for which you can see the lyrics below, sent as they were down the PR wire — is up now as a name-your-price download through Bandcamp, and both a first EP and a 10-date first European tour seem set to arrive in May, and the three-piece features guitarist/vocalist Pootchie (not to be confused, or maybe to be confused, I don’t really know, with the Simpsons character), who also made a full-length debut last year as a member of Beesus (review here).

In any case, “Lost in Time” gives Queens of the Stone Age-style riffing a garage-minded kick in the pants, and if you’ve got a couple minutes, you can get a sampling of it below. Social media presence is nil, but I also included the link to their Bandcamp, in case you’d like to read all the same stuff there as well.

FVZZ POPVLI – Lost in Time

Established in Rome under the will of three potheads… FvzzPopvli: a brand new trio with musicians coming from different experiences, with an addiction for heavy fuzzy riffs from the Black Sabbath era till the Palm Desert Scene, playing with a garage attitude in a heavy psych mood! The band is ready to promote their first single “Lost In TIme”, wich is actually an exclusive for Bandcamp with an up to you download. The upcoming “EP” is composed of five roaring songs, to quench your thirst of fuzzy and fat sounds!
